CORAL GABLES, Fla., March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MasTec, Inc. (NYSE: MTZ) today announced that it will offer $350,000,000 aggregate principal amount of senior notes in a registered public offering.
The senior notes will be MasTec's senior unsecured unsubordinated obligations and will rank equally in right of payment with any existing and future unsubordinated debt, and senior in right of payment to any existing and future subordinated debt. The senior notes will be effectively junior to MasTec's secured debt, including MasTec's existing credit facility, to the extent of the value of the assets securing that debt. The senior notes will be guaranteed on an unsecured unsubordinated basis by MasTec's domestic subsidiaries that guarantee MasTec's existing credit facility.
